After messing about with various springs, I settled on a 150mm long side stand spring off Ebay (No 1823 9588 8312).
This can be slipped over the brake rod, with the front hooked over the ‘c’ bracket at the brake pedal end ; the rear of the spring is then level with the first bolt of the footrest bracket.
A little right angle bracket fixed inside the footrest bracket and a rather neat job.
As the spring is just a bit larger than the brake rod, it fits over it nicely (so the rod runs inside the spring) ; the rear hook on the spring is bent out 90 degrees to fit the angle bracket.
